Car Wrecks in Michigan

Detroit, MI - Auto Collision on I-696 near Southfield Rd Causes Delays & Injuries

Michigan is a heavily populated state with more than 7 million licensed drivers and over 100,000 miles of paved roadways. According to road and highway facts from the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Wolverine State has enough pavement on their roadways to build a one-lane road from the Earth to the moon. Understandably, and unfortunately, many car crashes take place in Michigan that often lead to injuries and sometimes fatalities. 

If you or a loved one of yours has recently been hurt in a Michigan car accident, you need to ask yourself two things: 

  • Did the wreck cause injuries that affect your everyday life? 
  • Was the crash your fault, partially your fault, or entirely the fault of another?

Victims of auto accidents in Michigan are able to benefit from the comparative negligence law–which means that even if you’re partially at fault for a crash, you may still be able to recover some financial compensation for your injuries and losses that may have resulted from the incident. For instance, if you’re 50% at fault, you may be able to recover 50% of your damages. A car crash lawyer in Detroit will be able to help you further understand your right toward financial compensation if you have recently been hurt in a crash.
